How to play Cry of Fear Online: Hosting And Joining
By Dicko
This Guide will teach you how to play Cry of Fear online, Till the creators fix it.
Port Forwarding
Before you can start a server, You HAVE to forward your ports. I WILL NOT BE TEACHING YOU HOW TO DO THIS. That my friends is for another guide. It's different for everyone. I will however tell you what ports to forward. 27015 and 27020 should be all you need.
Starting a Server
First step. Go into the option, Go into the advanced tab an choose an Online name and activate console. Now start a server. Once you are ingame, Open the console and you'll have some codes to insert:

sv_lan 0 *Turns off lan. This MUST be entered*
heartbeat *This lists your server on steam servers lists, So others can join.This code is optional*
restart *This must be entered for your server not to be in lan*

Now your server should be Up. If you didn't enter heartbeat, You need to give your friends your server IP. Find your IP Here[], And add :27015 at the end, That should be your server's IP. your friends will have to enter this code into the console:

connect (Your IP here):27015
Joining Servers
Now, If you're just joining a random server, Because you have no friends then fear not! There is another way! There is a list of CoF servers {LINK REMOVED} If there's no servers listed, There is no servers. Simple as that. If there is, Copy and paste the server IP, then put this code in the console:

connect (Server IP here)

And hit enter! If it freezes, Chill out and be patient. It should work. Have fun :)

dude, i should say this the game has gotten old, and they haven't came back to it in years so it's not gonna be fixed.

Just a note, if you are the host and your users d/c during level transitions, enabling compatibility mode for Windows XP SP2 on the .exe seems to fix it. This also fixes missing flashlights

If this causes odd flickering disable film grain

If this causes loss of bullet sounds, I have yet to find a resolution

by the way that removed link probably leads to "CoF Server Browser 5.0" you have to search it on google as the steam doesnt approve links.
